    By seeing it happen live, one step at a time using the debugger, you get to learn these things. By just luckily writing a program that "works", but never knowing why it works, gets you nowhere in the learning process. Once you have the necessary skills as a C++ programmer to have confidence in knowing how code will flow and what the various constructs will do, do you then take shortcuts by setting breakpoints and such.

    Thanks for the advice, I'm not new to programming though just to C++. I pretty much understand how things work by now, so I am looking for shortcuts.
    I do obviously have much to learn about C++, things that I haven't encountered in other languages, but rest assured I'm not about to ask you how an IF statement works.
